ATHLONE, Ireland – Former 100 metre world record holder Asafa Powell described as "unfortunate" the reason for pulling out of Wednesday night's (18 Feb) AIT International Indoor meet.

Powell suffered a groin injury during warm-up and pulled out of the men's 60m race.

“It was very unfortunate that I injured my groin in the warm-up and couldn’t race but these things happen in the sport,” Powell told Midlands103 sport.

 Powell, however, promised fans he will be back for the event next year.
